Tyson Fury verbally attacked Anthony Joshua’s promoter and matchroom boss Eddie Hearn.
Fury has been growing increasingly frustrated in recent weeks, with talks between Top Rank’s Bob Arum and Hearn stretching out over final details about £200m fight that will crown the first unified heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis.
The Gypsy King also took the opportunity to take aim at Hearn for his treatment of Billy Joe Saunders in the build-up to his bout with pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez.
Hearn represents Saunders, but during a training session with his fellow Brit, Fury claimed the promoter was prioritising Canelo in the build-up, labelling him an “absolute w*****”.
“I think Matchroom Boxing and Eddie Hearn are absolute w******,” Fury said on social media.
They’re up Canelo Alvarez’s ringpiece a million miles. Look on the f****** webpage. All Canelo, Canelo,” Fury said.
“Do you promote Billy Joe or not you little w**** p****?
“Frank Warren is worth 10 of you, Eddie, you little sausage. He knows how to promote fighters, that’s why he’s a Hall of Fame promoter.”
